Food that's the real deal
Greenwich has an increasingly international flare—just walk down the Avenue and count the languages you hear. As a result, our restaurants go well beyond Italian and French.
To find out which spots with global cuisine are most authentic—and delicious—we asked local residents who are originally from other countries where they go to get a taste of home.

“My absolute favorite is Thomas Henkelmann where Alberto and I always go to celebrate big occasions—anniversaries, birthdays. We love l’Escale for Sunday brunch with the kids and drinks at sunset by the water. Versailles is a regular breakfast/quick lunch place for us. I also like Le Provençal in Mamaroneck for lunch with the ladies.”

“I would say Kujyaku in Stamford has the most authentic Japanese food. My husband likes Kotobuki. Hajime in Harrison has nice chirashi sushi. Tengda has interesting rolls with great presentation.”

“Coromandel in SoNo is our favorite. While most Indian restaurants in the United States offer the same old menu of North Indian meat curries, Coromandel is tapping into this wonderful world of South Indian meat curries. You find dishes like chettinaad and moilee here, which are very specific to the southern region and done beautifully by Coromandel. I also judge the caliber of an Indian restaurant by its naan and its sambhar daal that comes with dosas. Coromandel excels in both.”

“We go to La Marqueta in Stamford for takeout and supplies—yerba matte, empanada wraps, dulce de leche. There’s also a good restaurant for Argentinian and Peruvian food in Port Chester called Inca & Gaucho
